Liver transplant in SCB Hospital

Bhubaneswar, April 4: For the first time, the SCB Medical College and Hospital (MCH) in Cuttack successfully conducted liver transplantation on Wednesday.

The first ever complex liver transplantation was conducted on a patient with end-stage liver disease at SCB Hospital yesterday, informed the hospital administration.

The 35-year-old wife of the middle-aged patient donated 60 per cent of her liver to her husband as transplantation was the only option left.

With this, SCB Hospital became the first government health facility to start liver transplantation in the state. 

The procedure took 10 hours by a joint team of 30 medical experts from SCB MCH and Asian Institute of Gastroenterology (AIG), Hyderabad led by renowned liver transplant surgeon Dr P Balachandran Menon.

The 45-year-old liver cirrhosis patient from Tigiria was under treatment for the last four years and was among the first few in the state’s transplant waiting list. 

The condition of both the donor and the recipient is stable after the critical procedure and will be under close observation for the next one month, said the hospital administration.
